The Change Of Art Team
We are a group of theatre practitioners and artists, who came together through shared activism and an affiliation with Hope Not Hate. We decided to create a public event to honour the late MP Jo Cox and share our love for this brilliant, multi-cultural city in the best way we know how – through the performing arts. We hope the Change Of Art festival will be a chance for both artists and public who would not usually meet, to get together. It brought people together from different communities across London and provided an opportunity for conversations to happen over food, drink and live performance. We chose a non-theatre space for the festival: The Human Rights Actions Centre at Amnesty International, as we wanted the event space to have a welcoming community feel.
2017 marked the first Change of Art Festival. The theme for the evening was ‘More In Common’.
